Growing up, I remember going to public school and, every year, celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. day. We would watch documentaries, read books, and study his “I Have A Dream” speech. We were told that Dr. King had inaugurated a new age in American history, that we were beginning to see that dream being made a reality. That we were a post-racial society.
It is a beautiful dream.
But this Thursday we were once again woken up from that dream with the sound of gunfire as our world experienced another tragedy.
